Spiritual Garden

Genesis 9:16, “When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth” (ESV). Psalm 72:6, “May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass, like showers that water the earth!” (ESV).

Spiritual Garden

Maintaining our Spiritual garden to reflect the beauty of God’s creation is a daily process in our Christian discipleship journey. Proper maintenance of our Spiritual garden is necessary as we Pull Weeds and Plant Seeds that are threatening to ruin our plants. During daily process we may struggle, for all God’s children will experience trials as we mature spiritually on the road to Christian discipleship. Remember that we can do anything through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13). We must spend time with God to seek His discernment in the way we should nurture the condition of our Spiritual garden. Are you pulling those weeds that are spreading like gangrene ruining your garden? Are you planting those seeds and nurturing it to its fruition? Even though you are proud of your Spiritual garden, do you think that God is equally proud of it? Do you honestly believe that as our Lord is looking at our Spiritual gardens that He will be pleased and say to us, His sons and daughters …job well done?

Spiritual Knowledge

Knowing that God loves us, we should praise His name as He did create us along with the heavens and the earth for us to live in. We must know that God’s creation is impeccable, His work is flawless! It is perfect! We must take care of what God has given us. In maintaining your Spiritual garden, stand in agreement that God deserves all the glory, honor, and He created the heavens and the earth. His work did not stop by only creating us but He also provides for us. He takes care of us, not only yesterday and today, but also for tomorrow and the future under His grace and mercy, His word is alive forever!

Spiritual Beauty

An excerpt from my book Uncertainties and Reasoning, the first paragraph on page 23 reads as follows, “Pluck, Pluck, Pluck! If it acts like a weed, looks like a weed, sways like a weed, it is a weed. Pluck it! The beauty of spiritual gardens should replicate the rainbow colors that reflect God’s promise to us. In the book of Genesis, God’s promise reveals He will not flood the earth again. After heavy rains, a beautiful rainbow illuminates the sky with its glowing, radiant colors. The Scripture reads “And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth” (Genesis 9:16 NIV).Amen. God’s words provide a clear purpose for His will for our lives.

God promised in His Word that He will not flood the earth again. The rainbow is a covenant and represents His promise to us. As we admire the beautiful rainbows in the sky, the covenant between God and every creature on earth, can we say that our Spiritual garden is as beautiful, or does it complement the purity of God’s word? After it rains, one can appreciate viewing the beautiful rainbows in the sky with all the pretty colors in it. The rainbow serves as an eternal reminder of His covenant and another symbol of His love for His children.

Spiritual Insight

God has done many things for us and shows us that He loves us in many ways. As we trust in God, we must fulfill our roles and allow Him to bless you at His will because He loves us. Seek God’s assistance in taking care of the Spiritual garden and cultivate those seeds to reflect the beauty of God’s creation. Ask God to reveal and identify to you those seeds that need additional watering to reflect the beauty of God’s creation to strengthen our actions to fulfill His purpose for our lives.  Just ask the Lord, how can I improve my spiritual garden? How can I use it to replicate the beauty of the rainbow? How can I please you more, God? How I can ensure I am your Disciple Jesus? Help me to rake my spiritual garden and remove those malicious weeds that are spreading like gangrene trying to ruin the growth of my spiritual garden. Let us engage in Thanksgiving, singing Songs of Praise and glorifying Your Name!

Spiritual Fruits

God knows our hearts and can see our spiritual garden clearly. As Disciples of Jesus Christ, we follow the Great Commission in Matthew 28 that Jesus gave us to GO and make Disciples. Before we start making disciples, we must ensure that our Spiritual garden contains the proper fruits to reflect the Glory of God! Galatians 5:22 reveals that “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” These seeds should be planted in our garden to enable us to bear the right fruit in accomplishing God’s will In cultivating and nurturing our Spiritual garden, we should ensure it is pleasing to our King, as He is just and we will all give Him an account of our lives one day. Seek God’s guidance as you pursue His will and plant the Fruits of the Spirit in your garden.

Spiritual Stewardship

WE should strive to be like God! We are stewards of our Spiritual garden. We are Kings, Queens, Princes, and Princesses of the Divine Spiritual garden that our Lord empowers us to maintain. As Ambassadors for Christ, spreading the Good News of the Gospel in the Christian discipleship process, we should be just like our heavenly Father. In tending to our Spiritual gardens, we must not discriminate in planting and nurturing seeds to reflect God’s glory. As we humble ourselves before our Lord, we must make wise decisions in supporting fruits that appear in our garden. As we cultivate and nurture our gardens, our hearts and minds must be in a humble state to make wise decisions in personal judgment as we keep God’s will first.

As stewards of God’s property, we should ask our Lord to grant us peace, justice on the land, on every mountain and hill, as we pray for fairness. We should ask God to help us to take care of our Spiritual garden to keep it beautiful! We should fear and respect God. He created the shining sun and the bright moon and out of reverence to our Father, we must respect Him. He even blesses us with rain showers that assist us with personal Spiritual growth as we tend to our gardens. God provides goodness everywhere. As our Spiritual garden reflects the beauty of God’s creation, His goodness and peace should be cultivated and nurtured in our midst. We should plant our Lord’s seeds in a loving manner. We should help others needing assistance in their Spiritual growth. Even those who may try to harm you or your Spiritual garden, God loves them the same. We should continue praising God’s glorious grace for His creation and blessings as we continue Pulling Weeds, Planting Seeds and worshipping His Name.

Spiritual Walk

As we continue our walk with Christ, many weeds will try to grow in our Spiritual garden to ruin or delay processes. We should pull those weeds by using biblical principles and God’s Words as reminders of how we should maintain the landscape of our Spiritual garden. Seek His face and guidance in maintaining our landscape a holy place. Though others may challenge your beliefs, we thank God for being our Almighty Father Who is willing to work with us in maintaining our spiritual stance as we protect our garden in the mighty name of Jesus.

We provide thanksgiving for our Creator. He gives us instructions on how to cultivate our Spiritual garden as we seek His face trying to emulate His ways. God loves us! His love is deeper than the deepest imaginable seas. Our Spiritual garden should reflect the beauty of the rainbow as that is the covenant He established with us in Genesis. Praise the Lord!!! Keep God first and foremost in your life and continue to engage in eternal Thanksgiving to our Lord while cultivating our Spiritual garden. We thank you Heavenly Father, we give you all the glory and honor you deserve! Blessings in the name of Jesus!
